Still at home.


I am currently 25 living with my Dad. It's been a little over two years since my brain surgery in the brain stem, at first I was just glad I survived and with years more of therapy I believe I will walk again. But being 25 and living with my Dad is extremely difficult. He currently is my caregiver, it is not easy. I see nearly no one else often and he believes he controls me, he is very old school. VERY. If you want more detail see The Padded Room... eventually.

Finalpoet,
Is there any way you can talk to him? I live with my parents and they are in their 80s and have been parental when I don't need it. Much of the time I let it go because I don't want to create waves. But some of the time I do tell them. Is it possible to get a caregiver through an agency so they could give you and your Dad a break? It might be helpful. Good luck. Jeanne
